/> Daadaoui, who teaches political science, said Razi Hashmi, executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, will give a public lecture at 11:30 a.m., and Daadaoui will speak at 2:30 p.m.

An interfaith panel discussion featuring Charles Kimball, director of religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, and Imad Enchassi, imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, among others, will begin at 4 p.m.

Daadaoui, originally from Morocco, said he has been part of the OCU family for about two years. He said he received much support from OCU and local Muslim leaders to make Islam Day happen.

"This is an opportunity to bring in the Muslim community and raise their awareness about OCU and vice versa,” he said.
